  1. Preparation:
  • Start by thawing the turkey breast if it's frozen.
  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
  • Season the turkey breast with your choice of herbs, spices, and oil or butter.
  1. Cooking:
  • Place the turkey breast in a roasting pan or baking dish, making sure it fits comfortably.
  • Roast the turkey breast in the preheated oven. A general rule of thumb is to cook it for about 20 minutes per pound, but the internal temperature of the turkey should reach 165°F (74°C) to ensure it's fully cooked.
  • You can baste the turkey breast with its juices or butter to keep it moist during cooking.
  1. Resting:
  • Once the turkey breast is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a juicier turkey.
  1. Serving:
  • Slice the turkey breast against the grain into desired thickness and serve with your favorite side dishes.

Remember to always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature to ensure the turkey breast is cooked through. Enjoy your delicious roasted turkey breast!
